Measuring Your Self Worth




“As long as you look for someone else to validate who you are by seeking their approval, you are setting yourself up for disaster. You have to be whole and complete in yourself. No one can give you that. You have to know who you are – what others say is irrelevant.”
Nic Sheff

Self confidence refers to assuredness in our own worth, abilities and power, regardless of the situation we are in. Someone who is self confident has a strong sense of belief and certainty in themselves. They exude calmness, composure and is self aware.

We all have some sort of measuring stick that we use to determine our value as a human being. When we feel like we are measuring up, we feel good about ourselves. But, when we feel like we have fallen short, our self esteem can plummet.

Think about a symbol of worth to you. Is it competency? Is it the amount of money you earn? Is it how attractive you look? Identify them, then ask yourself this – why do you perceive these as symbols of worth? Why must you have to have these before you can feel worthy or confident about yourself? Who said anything about these being prerequisites before you can even feel your self worth?

When we become aware of what you are linking our worth to, we can start releasing our self of that limiting belief that we can only feel worthy or confident in the face of certain prerequisites. When we do that, we will become able to find our self filled with a sense of self-worth that is always there, regardless of what happens.

The way you choose to measure your worth as a person will serve as a major factor in the choices you make, the thoughts you have about life, and the way you feel about yourself. Importantly, understand what measuring stick you are using to determine your value and begin to measure your self worth based on the factors you can control – not the external events in your life.

Take a closer look at what you measure your of self worth by today.

“You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don’t know it, all of that doesn’t even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It’s not like you have forever, so don’t waste any of your seconds, don’t throw even one of your moments away.”
